Regent was founded in 1970 by hotel industry legend Robert H Burns and recognised internationally following the debut of the Regent Hong Kong in 1980.
After nearly 50 years of development, Regent Hotels Group currently owns close to 20 hotels and resorts worldwide under brands Regent Hotels & resorts, Silks Place, Silk Club and Just Sleep, of which Regent Hotels & Resorts is the most luxurious brand.
“The only thing we specialise in is luxury, and the only thing our hotels have in common is the fact that they are all unique,” Robert was quoted as saying.
Born from a blend of Eastern simplicity and Western elegance, with subtle yet distinct and classy features, Regent is the first truly Asia-based global hospitality group to successfully enter the international market and gain a firm foothold in a industry that is dominated by European and American brands.
The Regent brand's philosophy is rooted in harmony, with a complementary balance of yin and yang that embodies the best of the world.
It represents the harmony of the opposites and the balance between nature and man, bringing together the essence of the sky and the earth.
Combining the unique essence of distinct local features with exclusive standards for each hotel, not necessarily following the inherent popular trends in the hospitality industry, every Regent development is a unique masterpiece.
Understated luxury and bespoke hospitality placed in timeless elegance bring customers authentic and unforgettable experiences.
Regent Hotels & Resorts is, therefore, a frequent destination for world celebrities, politicians and businesspeople.
During the past 47 years, the average occupancy rate of Regent has been higher than 90 per cent.
In 1990, the best romantic film of all time “Pretty Woman” was filmed at Regent Beverly Wilshire, while King of Pop music the late Michael Jackson chose to stay at Regent Taipei in 1993 and 1995. Regent has also welcomed famous stars such as Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Cindy Crawford and Tom Cruise, as well as Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Elton John and Michael Jordan, along with Lang Lang, Sophie Marceau, Lionel Richie, Keanu Reeves and most recently Lady Gaga.
Regent Phu Quoc – Awakens every sense
From Asia and Europe to America, each Regent development leaves a unique imprint. Regent, therefore, brings a distinctive element to Phú Quốc Island, Việt Nam.
Developed by BIM Group, among the most prestige property developers in Việt Nam, Regent Phu Quoc covers 15ha at the developer’s Phu Quoc Marina on Long Beach – famous for its wonderful view of the sunset. It has 76 luxurious villas, 72 sky villas and 120 hotel rooms, together with luxury facilities and amenities such as a rooftop bar, sky bar, gym and beach club, as well as a spa and a Michelin-star restaurant.
Regent Phu Quoc has played an important role in the global expansion plan of Regent, especially in Southeast Asia, Steven Pan, chairman of Regent Hotels Group, said.
The project was honoured with the Asia Pacific Property Award in 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand.
